- Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India
Considered a "luxury," many children living in poverty don't have access to much needed art supplies (coloring books, paper, crayons, etc), which can play a vital part in their development, creative thinking, problem-solving and overall happiness. My goal is to change this, and to work towards giving all children access to a creative outlet, and help create a better future.
This July I will be traveling to India with Orphan Outreach, delivering donated art supplies to children in an orphanage located in Manali, India within the Himalayan Mountains. In addition, I will work on laying the groundwork for an AIGA Design For Good-inspired plan slated to launch fall of this year. This initial trip will also be used as a case-study and evaluate the potential of this program.
I plan to use case-study developed to garner support and funding to create a program that partners with schools and orphanages starting in India, providing children with much needed art supplies.
